Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s top military aide and a former commander in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, was quoted as saying, “The Zionists and the US are aware of the power of Iran and Hezbollah, and they know that over 80,000 (Iranian) missiles are ready to rain down on Tel Aviv and Haifa… The Israel Defense Forces have assessed that Iran’s proxy Hezbollah has an arsenal of over 100,000 rockets, hundreds of which are capable of hitting anywhere within Israel.
The Iranian-backed terrorist organization Hezbollah revealed a “vast network of advanced tunnels” along the Israeli-Lebanese border to a pro-Hezbollah newspaper on Friday.
